Negative bonus ANSWERED

Post by Alexander82 » Tue Feb 26, 2019 7:02 pm

I don't know if it is already possible to do but can we set a negative damage bonus for certain categories?

It is something that should probably apply after the normal bonus since, as far as I know, right now when a target unit fall in more categories at once the engine always use the higher multiplier.

I'm asking for this because I've been asked to reduce damage taken from fire by basic undeads and having the chance to set a negative bonus might help with that.

Otherwise it should be necessary to lower fire base damage and increase the bonus against other categories.

I feel dumb not thinking of that sooner

it is possible to set 0.5 value meaning -50%.

but i discourage using it - it looks weird, and not so easy to calculate with it.

i suggest lovering base damage and increasing bonus.

We want this, stratego, for usage on burning effect on skeletons and other undeads.
Not for normal units.

Please when you ask to change something argument why do you want that change. ...
Put some numbers, compare to what other races have and so on. Some real info why it must be done.

I personally think that poison also must affect undeads less so for this effect i think we can also put negative bonus to undeads.

Poison should not affect Undead. Maybe demons, but not undead.
